Dosage Guide For CBD

CBD Dosage Guide

The usage and therapeutic use of CBD oil are still in the infancy even cannot prescribe dosages as there is no recommended or universal dosage for everyone. It’s only been recent, that scientists and or medical professionals are starting to develop schedules for dosing for CBD and medical marijuana.

There is no recommended dose and most web pages when searching can only be intended as an informational guide or a starting point and is NEVER considered medical advice.

EVERY BODY is different!!

Body weight, metabolism, and countless other factors; even pain tolerance makes it impossible to prescribe and more often than not it is a rough estimate.  That is why we at Baja Hemp Co advise people new to CBD  to start with a certain dosage and from there a person can go increase or decrease based on how the individual feels.

From the research, I have done if you start out with the suggested dosage on the product and increase it until you find symptom relief.  CBD dosages and duration of the illness depends on exactly that and so many other factors.

The many ways to use CBD

Vape Cartridges

This is the fastest way to deliver CBD into your system (body and brain)  is through the lungs. Most vapes are sold prefilled in cartridges and come in a variety of strengths depending on your needs.

Sublingual (under the tongue) tinctures, extracts

All of these will have a suggested serving size however that is all it is a suggestion.  The rest of the directions are important to follow – like keeping the liquid under your tongue for 60 seconds. This gives it time to absorb into the blood vessels and bypassing the metabolism.

Edibles

Including capsules, food and or gummy treats may take a while to work as it needs to go through the digestive system and usually provide a longer effect.   After ingestion can take up to 60 min to take effect and lasts 2-6 hours.

Transdermal Patch

A slow and steady release of CBD into the bloodstream, and may take hours to feel the effect but once it’s in you the relief is long lasting up to 96 hours in some cases depending on the brand.

Topically

Bypasses the liver metabolism and varies widely to factors of fatty tissue, skin temperature and varies with amount used. Great for inflamed joints and muscles and is long lasting.

Naturally treating Fibromyalgia

At BajaHempCo we are committed to natural health, not just pushing a product. Recently a new friend came to us with a very uncomfortable Fibromyalgia flare up. We recommend PlusCBD capsules, Xtend Caps, Balm and patches. This person chose capsules and we are hoping to hear that they worked wonders!

In case anyone else on our friends list is suffering from the same, I would like to share some other natural remedies to treat the pain and inflammation.

You want to try to get rid of all the toxins that you can in your body. Our first medicine is food.

These plants are great to detox and lower inflammation in the body:

Asparagus

Celery

Cilantro

Coconut & Coconut oil

Garlic*

Ginger*

Kale

Lemon skins

Papaya & its seeds

Raspberries

Spinach

Sprouts

Sweet potatoes

Turmeric*

Wild blueberries

Supplements:

5-mthf

Apple Cider Vinegar (Braggs, with the ‘mother’)*

Ashwagandha

B-12 (methylated)

B-17 (apricot kernals, ONLY 1 per day)

Cats Claw

Camu Camu

Curcumin

D3

D-Ribose

Elderberry

Fish oil

Ginseng

Iodine (1drop a day)

Manuka honey*

Magnesium (capsules and topical spray as well as Epsom soaks)

Lemon Balm

Licorice root

*An easy way to take these is leaving them to marinate. Take a large glass jar and add Manuka and ACV. Dice or grate the ginger, garlic, turmeric and onion. Leave in the pantry and take a spoonful each day with water. Also make an ACV lemonade each day. Large glass of ice water with two limes, a drop of lemon EO and a spoonful of ACV.

Essential Oils:

Deep Blue (Oil and Balm)

Wintergreen

Helichrysum

Lavendar

Rosemary

Thyme

What do I need to cut out of my diet to feel better?

Dairy

Food dyes

Gluten (if you are sensitive)

Meats (unless organic and local)

Processed & packaged foods

Sugar

I know it feels like a lot. What I do is make one change per week. You can even do every other week. So for example this week I can add Ginseng to my daily routine. Once I am in the habit of taking it daily, and I have observed how I feel while taking it, it’s now a part of my life. Now I can add Lemon Balm. Once Lemon Balm is in I can focus on cutting out dairy. And so on. Constantly move towards a state of optimal health.

Also, something to keep in mind. Oftentimes Fibromyalgia is a misdiagnosed case of Lyme disease. Make sure you don’t have Lyme as that will include a different treatment as well.

Please let me know if you have any questions and remember BajaHempCo is #naturallyhealing

Endocannabinoids for dummies

This article was published last year on herb.co.  It explains the endocannabinoid system very simple and straight forward. 

Have you ever wondered how THC works? Well, it just-so-happens to be a similar shape to a compound our bodies create naturally. Thanks to its shape, THC is able to tap into a network in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system. It’s this ability that gives THC it’s psychoactive effects. But, what is the endocannabinoid system and what does it do? To help you understand, we’ve created a handy guide to the endocannabinoid system for dummies.

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) refers to a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. You can think of cell receptors like little locks on the surface of your cells. The keys to these locks are chemical molecules called agonists.  Each time an agonist binds to a cell it relays a message, giving your cell specific direction.

The endocannabinoid system is the name for a series of cell receptors that respond to certain kinds of agonists. Two primary cell receptors make up the ECS, Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2). The keys for these receptors are called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are like the body’s natural THC.  In fact, endocannabinoids got their name from cannabis. Plant cannabinoids were discovered first.  Endo means within, and cannabinoid referring to a compound that fits into cannabinoid receptors.

There are two main endocannabinoid molecules, named anandamide and 2-Ag. Funny thing, scientists wouldn’t have discovered anandamide without THC. Psychoactive (THC) was first discovered by Israeli scientist Raphael Mechoulam back in the 1960s. His finding quickly spurred a rush to figure out how THC worked, and whether or not our own bodies produced a similar compound.

More than two decades after the search began, anandamide was found. Yet, once they isolated the chemical, they faced another challenge. What should it be called? They turned to Sanskrit. Anandamide comes from the Sanskrit word Ananda, which means bliss. So, basically, anandamide means bliss molecule.

What does the ECS do?

Cannabinoid receptors are found all throughout the body, giving them a wide variety of functions. However, certain receptors are more concentrated in specific regions. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system.

The diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. They help regulate the following:

Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers that tell your body to get these processes moving and when to stop. They help maintain optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis. When the ECS is disrupted, any one of these things can fall out of balance. Dysregulation in the ECS is thought to contribute to a wide variety of conditions, including fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.

The ECS theory of disease is termed Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency.  The idea is simple: when the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses that affect one or several of the functions listed above.

Where do endocannabinoids come from?

If your body cannot produce enough endocannabinoids, you might be in for some trouble. But, where do endocannabinoids come from, anyway? This question has another simple answer: diet.

Your body creates endocannabinoids with the help of fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially important for this. Recent research in animal models has found a connection between diets low in omega-3s and mood changes caused by poor endocannabinoid regulation.

Fortunately, hemp seeds are a quality source of omgea-3s. However, fish like salmon and sardines produce a form of omega-3s that is easier for your body to put to use.

Beyond Cell Receptors

Cannabinoid receptors are often what we associate with the endocannabinoid system. But, the ECS is more complicated than that. Enzymes also have a crucial role to play in the process. In a way, enzymes are kind of like Pacman. They gobble up various compounds, change them, and then spit out the parts. In the ECS, enzymes break down leftover endocannabinoids. Enter non-psychoactive CBD.

Enter non-psychoactive CBD. While THC binds with cannabinoid receptors directly, CBD does not. Instead, it works it’s magic on an enzyme. The enzyme in question is called FAAH, and it is responsible for pulling excess anandamide out of circulation.

CBD puts a stop to this. Psychoactive THC works by mimicking the body’s own endocannabinoids. But, CBD increases the amount of endocannabinoids in your system.

CBD stops enzyme FAAH from breaking down all of the anandamide, and therefore makes more of it available for use by your cells. This is why CBD is a natural mood-lifter without psychoactive effects.

This is just a brief overview of the endocannabinoid system. Each year, new studies shed light into what this amazing network does inside our bodies. The discovery of the ECS is what makes medical cannabis such a big deal.

People often joke about the herbs ability to heal a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions. But, we now understand that these conditions are all regulated in part by the ECS. The medical implications of this finding are endless.
